What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

 $french="14 nov. 10
19:17:32 GMT+01:00";


this works
echo date("Y-m-d",strtotime("14 nov. 10 19:17:32 GMT+01:00")) ;



but this doesnt
echo date("Y-m-d",strtotime($french)) ;


maybe because date is in french

Works OK for me without any locale setting.  PHP 5.3.3 on Linux
http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_strtotime.php?s=14+nov.+10+19%3A17%3A32+GMT%2B01%3A00

Outputs:
BINGO
14 nov. 10 19:17:32 GMT+01:00 WORKS WITH strtotime()
THE INTEGER TIMESTAMP VALUE IS 1,289,758,652
THE ISO8601 DATETIME STRING IS 2010-11-14T12:17:32-06:00
THE TEXTUAL DATE IS Sunday 14th of November 2010 12:17:32 PM

Here is my test script.
<?php // RAY_strtotime.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// PHP 5.1+  SEE http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-set.php
date_default_timezone_set('America/Chicago');

// IF WE HAVE INPUT FROM THE URL QUERY STRING
if (!empty($_GET["s"]))
{
    // USE strtotime() FUNCTION TO MAKE A TIMESTAMP
    // MAN PAGE: http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php
    $unix_timestamp = strtotime($_GET["s"]);

    // TEST FOR SUCCESS OR FAILURE
    if ($unix_timestamp === FALSE)
    {
        echo "<strong>HONK!</strong><br /> <u>{$_GET["s"]}</u> NOT USEFUL WITH strtotime() <br/><br/><br/><br/>";
    }

    // ON SUCCESS, PRINT THE RESULTS
    else
    {
        echo "<strong>BINGO</strong><br /> <strong><u>{$_GET["s"]}</u></strong> WORKS WITH strtotime() <br/>";
        echo "THE INTEGER TIMESTAMP VALUE IS ";
        echo number_format($unix_timestamp) . "<br />";

        // FORMAT ISO AND HUMAN-READABLE DATES
        // MAN PAGE: http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
        $y = date('c', $unix_timestamp);
        echo "THE ISO8601 DATETIME STRING IS $y<br />";
        $z = date('l dS \o\f F Y g:i:s A', $unix_timestamp);
        echo "THE TEXTUAL DATE IS $z<br />";
    }

    echo PHP_EOL;
} // END OF PROCESSING INPUT
// PUT UP THE FORM
?>
<html>
<head>
<title>TEST THE PHP FUNCTION strtotime()</title>

<body onload="document.f.s.focus()">
<form name="f" method="get">
<br />TO TEST A STRING FOR A VALID DATE/TIME, TYPE IT HERE:<input name="s" />
<input type="submit" value="GO" />
</form>

TRY TESTING SOME OF THESE STRINGS (CLICK THE LINK, OR COPY AND PASTE INTO THE FORM):


<?php function t($str)
{
    echo "<br/><a href=\"http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_strtotime.php?s=" . urlencode($str) . "\">$str</a>\n";
}
t('- 3 hours');
t('tomorrow');
t('tomorrow 3:15:25 pm');
t('March 15, 1986');
t('yesterday');
t('yesterday + 1 week');
t('next year');
t('now');
t('now + 627 hours 15 minutes');
t('tomorrow midnight');
t('tomorrow 1:35pm');
t('last Tuesday');
t('three days ago');
t('- 3 days');
t('A VALID TIME');
t('A BOGUS TIME');
t('A NON-BOGUS TIME');
t('s time');
t('t time');
t('u time');
t("Avogadro's Constant");
t("Wednesday November, 10 2010 1:01pm");
t("Wednesday, November 10 2010 1:01pm");
?>

Looks like the linefeed in the middle of the date causes trouble.  Copy / paste into an input control eliminates this character.  So it makes sense to eliminate extraneous whitespace in the date/time strings.  Line 16 of the code snippet does the trick.
<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// PHP 5.1+  SEE http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-set.php
date_default_timezone_set('America/Chicago');

// setlocale(LC_ALL,"fr_CA");

  $french="14 nov. 10
19:17:32 GMT+01:00";

echo date("Y-m-d",strtotime("14 nov. 10 19:17:32 GMT+01:00")) ;
echo date("Y-m-d",strtotime($french)) ;

// CORRECT FOR LINEFEEDS WITH PREG_REPLACE EXAMPLE 5
$french = preg_replace('/\s\s+/m', ' ', $french);
echo date("Y-m-d",strtotime($french));
